Headmaster sexually assaulted girls

A FORMER headmaster at Burton Morewood Primary School in Burton-in-Kendal has been found guilty of sexually assaulting two girls who were pupils at the school.

Yesterday, Monday, Ian Glover, 63, of The Green, Lindal-in-Furness, was convicted at Carlisle Crown Court of 23 indecent assaults on one of the girls and one on the other.

The jury returned unanimous verdicts, rejecting Glover’s claim that the allegations had been made up.

The offences happened in the 1990s when he was head at the school and the conviction comes almost ten years after he was jailed for three years for committing similar offences with a different girl.

Glover was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced today.
